This is the first comprehensive and up-to-date reference on the science, mechanism, methodology, and application of allelopathy. The objective of this practical reference is to report on the latest advances by inviting leading scientists to contribute in specific fields. The volume is organized under three major subsections: History of allelopathy, Allelochemicals, allelopathic mechanisms, and bioassays, and Application of allelopathy in agriculture and forestry.
Only comprehensive and up-to-date reference on the science, mechanism, methodology, and application allelopathy
Publication idea sprung from an international conference on allelopathy and the theme expanded to be broad-based and inclusive of global perspective and participation
Book with its emphasis on sustainable agriculture and forestry should be of interest to a wide group of scientists in agriculture, forestry, and terrestrial ecologists
